Ahmad, then why was he in a hurry to burn and pillage cities (villages), why may he not be sculpted if he didn't care?

If he only cared for the word of Allah or GOD, then why be in a hurry to spread it? Eventually Allah or GOD would spread the word them selves, if they would see fit. WHY ever would they need help from a simpel mortal like him for that? Why ever whould they need weapons for that if it was the will of Allah or GOD?

Why is it Mohammed (peace be upon him) and not just mohammed, Why are there so many sensitivities around he's persona, if he didn't care about such. Why do the muslim culture care so much about it if he didn't?

IF he didn't want to be mentionend and didn't seek any glory for him self, nor power, then how come he is mentioned. He could just as easily have his own name removed and put down:" the writings of a prophet" instead. If it is forbidden to show his picture, then why even show his name if you want to prevent idolisation. Because right now people are probaly idolating his name instead of his message(oops another mistake, it's not his message, right, but that of Allah).

So Mohammed/Muhammed or however you write it, has nothing to do with the Q'uran, it's all about Allah... He picked someone off the streets and made him start a cilivisation, with army, believers, etc...

I think, and this is my personal opinion, That during he's life time he didn't want to be recognized out of fear and the Q'ran was from writings of him or "his followers" justifying whatever they did, through writings on whatever they found, clothes, bones, etc... There is no Allah who ordered to create a book, even less give it a name (Q'uran, bible, Tora).

No supreme being leading his hands. Just his mind and desires.

It seems he did care about "his belief" because it wasn't a godly one at all. He was in a hurry because it had to be founded for his needs, during his life time and not for any godly being.

Did he sacrifice his life for our/your sins? Ow, could be my mistake, muslims probably don't have any?

Please understand, he created a self justifying belief and MADE others follow it.

By using nothing more then simple logic and the free knowledge that is available to all who want to reach out for it. You could as easily as I reach this conclusion. But as my belief states, The GOD I belief in gave humans the power to make mistakes, to choose freely for both evil and good.

So you're free to choose, and I would be going against my belief by imposing it upon you, sharing it is something different.

My GOD gave you the freedom to choose or not choose for Allah and/or Muhammed.

My GOD gave me the freedom to react when you want to impose your own chosen limitations upon me.

I don't need to fight you, or burn down buildings for My GOD, nor do I need to revolt when you try with your limited views to describe or defame My GOD.

For truly MY GOD is the most merciful and forgiving of all.

My GOD doesn't expect me to do anything for him for he's ALMIGHTY. He doesn't need me for anything for he's ALLKNOWING. He doens't need buildings, pictures, writings or statues for he's ALL PRESENT. My GOD doesn't care if one of us(humans) needs a picture or so to believe, it only represents the needy there weakness of faith and/or mind.

No one can offend My GOD as My GOD gave permission to use laughter, to lie, to be truthful, to be honest and dishonest. Notions like good and evil are only for us humans of importance. For My GOD it holds no value. Even death does not hold any importance to My GOD.

There for I can conclude with pride that I'm certain My GOD stands above Allah and isn' t one and the same. Feel free to attack my logic on this. I invite you to do so. My belief against your belief.

I have a different message then Muhammed and I'm no prophet, for My GOD doens't need any, isn't dependent on any.

My message is:" You (all humans) have been given the power to choose for evil and/or good, to inflict pain or relief, to love and/or hate to act, react or remain passive. But most importantly the ability to learn.

Eventually humanity will learn from it mistakes or perish. What is a lesson as well, that we all eventually will have to learn.

The rest is up to you, no truly godly being will care if you don't. No truly godly being will care if you finish off humanity.

But you know what? I care.
